And yes, renovator is only good for highly polished leathers and does dry out antiqued ones.

How about Saphir Lotion?

No, it is essentially the same thing. Use GlenKaren, Lexol, or Bick4. Or do what St. Crispin's site says on shoe care...

Saint Crispins got a new site, looks like a collaboration from all of its vendors, looks good though.

I have the exact same problem on 522B; creasing on toe cap.  It seems their toe stiffeners arent extended enough.

Just saw it via the link on Leffot.

 

Looks a lot better than it did before, that's for sure.

Is this the chiseled last or something bespoke?



Anyone able to compare the fit of the the chiseled relative to the classic?

Is the finishing the only difference between CRU and FUN?

Yes it is. Can easily compare the lasts. If only they had something that showed their colors.

I'm not sure how they could possibly represent everything they offer, because there are so many different colors and combinations possible. However If you go to the top of the web page to About Us and then Look Book 2014. After you are there then download the Look Book it gives you a better idea of the various colors and combinations they offer based on previous shoes they have sold.

That's not good at all - especially at this price point. I would send that pic to the retailer / or StC.

How is the fit?
